Another one here with the same issue and timing as OP. I've used both my MkIII's a lot and never had a problem. This was the first time I ran an SD in the cam with a CF and was recording to the SD at the time. I initially thought mine was at the 4gb changeover on last file before 29:59 limit but now that I look it appears it wrote the last 4gb file properly and got 2.5 minutes in to the next file before locking up. So at least I only lost 2.5 mins instead of the whole 22min file it was up to at the time!

It's out of question buy a pro camera 3500 ÔéČand never knows when you bring back a video without problems or you must apologize to the client that CANON  company is the reason that you lost his event or you must make the marriage again and maybe get a full video. With 7d never had this problem or 5dII .
Sorry about my bad English .

I get and ERR 2 when I use the Lexar 600x or 1000x 32 GB card.  I have yet to see the problem with the 16gb cards 2 600x.

I've only seen the problem when shooting with a 17-40.  I have seen the problem when shooting in full manual, 1080P.

Totally unacceptable.

My MarkIII started locking up when filming a concert, then started showing only a white screen or going pink or red
or green when taking pictures.  Sent it back to Canon and say it a warranty issue and are replacing the Main Board.
Only problem is after a week and a half no one can tell me when they will get the parts to fix it.  The repair loop
has no part to fix this problem.  I'm really disappointed with this set of issues, and will probably dump the MarkIII
when I get it back, whenever that will be...  purchased in Nov. 2012.  No parts at the repair facility for a possible
known issue is unexcuseable......  my customers would not accept such a situation.
